The location is perfect if your goal is to see Old City and have a nice view from your window. The hotel itself is very pretty. The lobby staff (front desk, valet, concierge, etc) are incredibly friendly, courteous and helpful. The rooms are clean and the beds comfortable. The maid service we had was poor in that they didn't tuck in the bottom sheets one night or supply us with a sufficient number of robes or towels (even after leaving a note requesting more than 2 bath towels). Had we called the front desk, I'm sure they would've delivered extra towels promptly, though. We also couldn't get a good water temperature in the shower most days. The water was either too hot or too cold. We had one issue with a loud sound from, possibly, a furnace or generator. I called the front desk and the problem was resolved within 30 minutes. Like I said, the hotel staff is wonderful. Internet is iffy on the 12th floor, so if you want reliable internet, its best to get a lower room. We didn't watch much TV, but were unable to adjust the aspect ratio on the LCD TV to correct the distorted images from an incorrect setting. Overall, it was a nice stay, but we're not sure we'd stay there again because of the maid service issues.
